March for Life Chicago 2020 will be a massive expansion of previous marches. This time, the traditional rally and march is coupled with a convention featuring pro-life organizations from across the United States, a young adult evening event, and a fundraising banquet. Due to a major uptick in attendance, March for Life Chicago 2020 has moved the opening rally to downtown Chicago’s spacious Daley Plaza. The March for Life 2020 keynote speaker will be abortion survivor Claire Culwell. Culwell was born two months premature after miraculously surviving the abortion that took the life of her twin sister. She was adopted, and in 2009, reconnected with her birth mother.
